​GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS

The Washington State Board of Education established graduation requirements that will require each student to develop a high school and beyond plan to guide his/her high school experience along with expectations for the year following graduation.

Graduation requirements for the school district are to:

  1. Qualify for a Certificate of Academic Achievement (CAA) or Certificate of Individual Achievement (CIA);
  2. Develop a High School and Beyond Plan – a plan for meeting high school graduation requirements and post high school career goals;
  3. Beginning with the graduating class of 2019, the state-required minimum number of credits has change from 23 to 24. The specific requirements for the Class of 2019 can be found in the WAC 180-51-068.
  4. Students who entered 9th grade in the fall of 2015 are considered a member of the 2019 class.


​STUDENT FEES

Schools provide students with most of the books, materials and equipment they need for class. Fees may be charged to students for consumable supplies, materials used on projects that are taken home or field trips. Students will be charged for any property or materials that are lost, stolen or damaged. The district is authorized to withhold grades, diplomas and/or transcripts unless arrangements are made with the principal for payment. (RCW 28A.635.060; Policy 3231, 3520) Fees may be waived if you cannot afford them. Contact your school principal for more information.
